2004 Ladera Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1028533

Sometimes two is better that one! In this case, the two are vineyards: Lone Canyon and Howell Mountain to be specific. Together they produce a wine that showcases their high-altitudes and major attitudes! The 2004 is a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petite Verdot and 3% Merlot. Each of the Bordeaux varieties adds something different to the wine's complexity. Cabernet Sauvignon provides the varietal character, depth and structure of the wine. Petite Verdot give the wine richness on the mid palate, along with added juicy flavors to the finish. Merlot contributes the fruit flavors of raspberry and strawberry, and freshness to the aromas. The 2004 vintage was an early vintage, with temperatures on the warmer side of normal. The low crop size contributed to the wine's superb richness, structure, depth and varietal character. The wine has aromas of blackberry and raspberry fruit; anise with toasty and vanilla highlights. The tannin structure is full and highly extracted, but soft and lush. -Elisabeth Schriber, K&L 2007
